It’s time for another episode of WWE NXT, and we’re continuing to feel the fallout of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver. Last week, Kyle O’Reilly made his return to the brand with a new personality, but same in-ring style, getting a win over Cameron Grimes. This week see’s Adam Cole has a sit down interview with Arash Markazi, and some must see matches as well.
MSKushida takes on Legado Del Fantasma in six man tag team action, Austin Theory takes on Bronson Reed, and Mercedes Martinez has Dakota Kai. Let’s break down these announced matches as we get ready for NXT!
Adam Cole Has A Lot To Say
After losing to Kyle O’Reilly at NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, Adam Cole was sent to a hospital due to the brutality of the match. Since then, he’s kept a low profile, while O’Reilly made his return and even stared down the new NXT Champion, Karrion Kross. Tonight though, Adam Cole breaks his silence. Sitting down with Arash Markazi, we are sure to find out what is next for Adam Cole, as he seems to be left in the dust after Takeover, and if he’s done with Kyle O’Reilly.
Bronson Reed Wants Another Shot At Johnny Gargano
At NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, Bronson Reed won a Gauntlet Eliminator match on match on Night One to earn a shot at Johnny Gargano on Night Two. He was close to winning, but ultimately unsuccessful. Since then, he’s remained a thorn in the side of The Way, and Austin Theory has had enough. He went to Regal and demanded a match with Reed, and if Reed wins, he gets another shot at Gargano! Gargano wasn’t pleased by this, but the match is made, and Theory just needs to get a win.
Mercedes Martinez Called Dakota Kai A Lap Dog
After becoming the NXT Women’s Champion by beating Io Shirai, Raquel Gonzalez got a major target on her back. The first one to come after her is Mercedes Martinez, who Gonzalez has been ducking for the moment. That changes, as Martinez called out Dakota Kai for a match. She called Kai the lap dog of Gonzalez, despite Kai being the one who brought Gonzalez into the mix. Tonight, Kai has a chance to prove she’s legit, as she faces Martinez.
MSKushida Take On Legado Del Fantasma
Finally, we have a fast paced clash from the NXT Cruiserweight & Tag Team divisions. Legado Del Fantasma have had it rough as of late, with Wilde & Mendoza failing to claim the NXT Tag Team Championships at Takeover, and Escobar losing the NXT Cruiserweight Championship to KUSHIDA. Tonight, they look to prove that as a unit, they can beat KUSHIDA & MSK, which could lead to future title matches.
